Abstract : The objective of the MULTIMODE AMPLIFIER program was to perform a feasibility study aimed at the development of a dual power coupled cavity TWT. The characteristics of interest in this device are 100 kW peak power, 10% duty and 500 MHz bandwidth in the primary mode of operation. The secondary mode will have a peak power of 500 kW, bandwidth of 250 MHz and a duty of 10%. This report describes the design details of the high power, dual mode S-band TWT and presents performance data from an experimental model, which was constructed to demonstrate some of the design features of the final amplifier.
